How was it the Assad dictatorship got so many women to play leading roles in its stable of propagandists? First, by appealing to fascist, Islamophobic, & anti-Semitic women (represented best by Eva Bartlett & Vanessa Beeley) & second by appealing to social climbers (best represented by Rania Khalek) who will say anything to foster their own careers. The same is also true for men, of course, but the Syrian counterrevolution turned out to be a gold mine for rightwing & unprincipled women because misogyny toward Muslim women is in the foundations of Islamophobia. It also establishes their place as a footnote in history’s hall of shame since their so-called journalism never rises above the level of horse manure.
